Weather Wizard from the Brett Crawford stable takes his place in Race 2. He produced a promising debut effort over 1450m on the Turffontein Inside course.

He jumped outwards leaving the start, but the way he finished off his race was eye-catching.

The son of Rafeef would have gained from the experience and should love the rise to the mile. With the natural improvement that is expected, he should be the one to beat.

Trainer Weichong Marwing sends out Divine Moonlight in the lucky last. She ran a decent race in her last start over 1200m against slightly stronger company.

She has finished second once and third once from three starts on this course.

She has no concerns with the drop to 1000m and if putting her best foot forward, she may be hard to peg back in the run down to the line.
